A 43-year-old woman from Clarksville, Tenn., was the 100th patient to receive the lap-band weight-loss surgery at Jennie Stuart Medical Center since the procedure became available there in 2010.

Another 48 patients will likely receive it there this year, according to a Jennie Stuart news release. Anyone who wants to learn more about the procedure can attend seminars on July 23 at the hospital and July 24 in Princeton.

For more information or to make reservations, call 800-887-JSMC (800-887-5762), ext. 4402.
